    9400m gt vs 8600m gt. I know that the 8600m gt is dedicated , but what is the real world difference. Will the Macbook beable to play games like Diablo 3, Star Craft 3, UT3. And does anybody find the 13.3 1280x800 screen too small. And will the 8400m gt be pretty much useless when snow leopard comes out. (Will it actually improve performance with the 8400m gt.)

    I tested the 9400M with 800 Mhz DDR2 and came out at 1930 in 3dMark06 without tuning. I have seen the 9400M with 1066 Mhz DDR3 comes out at about 2000-2100 3dMark06. And the 8600M GT in the XPS M1530 comes out to around 4000 3dMark06 so about double the performance of the 9400M.
